hope in earthen vessels


I was thinking about the importance of giving people hope. We all know that following the Lord’s way can be daunting at times. Assurance of things you once viewed as important fades away and you get to live by a thing called ‘faith’. Sometimes i find myself in introspection that never result in the best outcome. I realize that in my flesh i am so empty and almost always find a way to mess things up. 
But then i remember that somehow, for a reason i cannot understand so i know it is only Grace, the God of the universe chose to deposit this Life giving Spirit inside of me/us. I cannot understand why, but then i realize that i won’t fully understand ever. 
So i hear about ‘hope’ and i wonder what it really means. The only hope that is eternal is the hope that is in Spirit. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says: But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the surpassingness of the power may be of God, and not from us. 
The treasure is just the indwelling consummate Spirit.

How that gives me hope... so the ultimate hope is just presenting God. I am glad that the power is not of me because i so often fail major in myself.
